Budo Taijutsu, is like a bear waking from a long hibernation.
"Budo Taijutsu, which is by no means exclusively Japanese, is like a bear waking from a long hibernation. And now humankind is starting to wake up. The reason I draw the analogy of the hibernating bear is because regarding Taijutsu, the essence of fighting, mankind has been sleeping and has forgotten this essence. Martial friends, the alarm bell has started ringing. Wake up from your slumber!" - Masaaki Hatsumi
